Review: The Break by Marian Keyes

The BreakThe Break by Marian Keyes

**The Break is the brand new novel from Marian Keyes, out on September 7th 2017 - preorder it now**

Amy's husband Hugh isn't really leaving her.

At least, that's what he promises. He is just taking a break - from their marriage, their children and, most of all, from their life together. For six-months Hugh will lose himself in south-east Asia, and there is nothing Amy can say or do about it.

Yes, it's a mid-life crisis, but let's be clear: a break isn't a break up - yet . . .

It's been a long time since Amy held a briefcase in one hand and a baby in the other. She never believed she'd have to go it alone again. She just has to hold the family together until Hugh comes back.

But a lot can happen in six-months. When Hugh returns, if he returns, will he be the same man she married? And will Amy be the same woman?

Because falling in love is easy. The hard part - the painful, joyous, maddening, beautiful part - is staying in love.

'A born storyteller' Independent on Sunday

'When it comes to writing page-turners that put a smile on your face and make you think, Keyes is in a class of her own' Daily Express

Claire's Review 4 of 5 Stars

This is the story of Hugh and Amy. Hugh decides that he needs a 6-month break from the marriage and his life and he flies to South East Asia on a back packing vacation leaving Amy behind devastated. This story follows Amy through those 6 months.

I really enjoyed reading this book, it was a light and perfect summer holiday read that kept me hooked the whole way through. Excellently written, funny in places. I would definitely recommend this book.
